A quiet relaxing riverside oasis. Well kept park with picnic tabes and benches strategically placed to exploit a number of vistas. There is a special playground for kids that is a discret distance away from the river views. Strikingly quiet atmosphere that affords the opportunity...More

Matthiessen Park is actually a private park and when the town puts someone at the gate to check id (usually on weekends/holidays), only the locals will be allowed in. However, this isn't always the case and it's worth a shot, especially during the week when...More
